Hopefully the pond is big enough to hold it all .Be interesting to see when it fires up again if it goes into overload ,when all the emails start flying .

thankyou Ianoz

Talking to John parks from the USA quote

If the serial number #12 525 is accurate....then you have a 7T 525 made in 1945. It can not be a 9K 525 because of the fuel system, governor, injectors and lines.

I found the Waugh and Stepehenson plate just below the cab with 19 or as Onetrack has suggested a12 525serial number

Previously I had seen it written on the cab

The backout light and horn give a military flavour

HI Swishy dunno

being all mechanical makes i reasonably old , when you say smaller wheels at front are u referring to autopatrol cat 10 or 11 perhaps these are all 1400 x24

ol mate up the road has has grader, allis 45 or thereabouts, council use to be gd for a carton or two for everyone else .

I swap em some water when the creek is out for a quick swipe of our driveway when they are fixing our roads , we have about 10 kms to the bitumen

Swishy could the one in the pictures be a derivative or descendant of the cat 12 that being a 212 which is a smaller grader as the tyres look smaller overall and weighs a few ton less?

what do u think?
